A Maine quitclaim deed without covenant is used to convey property to a buyer from a seller but does not provide a guarantee or warranty. This means the buyer is purchasing only whatever interest the seller may or may not have in the property being sold. These types of deeds are occasionally used between family members or from a person to his or her trust. However, it is always wise to check on the title to make sure there aren’t any new interests recorded in the property.
